Arquebus +2 1d8 15/30 35 gp 6 lb. Firearm Load Two Minor, Powder Crit

The arquebus is a smoothbore, matchlock firearm. It does not have the power or accuracy of a bow, and carrying blackpowder can be dangerous. However, almost anyone can train to use an arquebus, and in a much shorter time.


The arquebus uses gunpowder and ball ammunition.

Load Minor

It takes a two minor action to reload an arquebus: one to load the powder and one to load the ball. The Speed Loader feat reduces the reload time to one minor action.

Powder Crit

The arquebus deals more damage when you score a critical hit with it, though not as much as a High Crit weapon. It deals an extra 1 damage at 1st–10th levels, an extra 2 damage at 11th–20th levels, and an extra 3 damage at 21st–30th levels. This extra damage is in addition to any critical damage the weapon supplies if it is a magic weapon.
